This is part one of the basics in Digital Systems. Beginning with the existence of Boolean Algebra, take on the form of “true” and “false”. This area of thought process is called “Deductive Logic”. This presentation explains the three most common gates, its meanings and how it relates to Boolean algebra. The fundamentals to Digital Systems relates to 1 and 0′s (binary numbers). Binary logic consists of binary values and logical operations. Variables are designated by letters of the alphabet. This series shows how binary numbers, truth tables, Boolean equations, Karnaugh maps and timing diagrams are used to communication within computers.
Narrated along with animation, part one of this series introduces the logic of starting a car and how to translate this information into a truth table. The presentation continues to explain the most significant bit orientation of a truth table, the introduction of ‘AND’, ‘OR’, and ‘NOT’ gates, the gates’ truth table with two variables, and how these gates translates into a timing signal.
